1925 Western Poland Business Directory #general

Logan J. Kleinwaks
 

A 1925 Western Poland Business Directory covering Great Poland, Pomerania,
Silesia, and Danzig has recently been made available online at the Digital
Library of Wielkopolska (www.wbc.poznan.pl/dlibra/docmetadata?id=39994).
The directory is organized by province, then town, then mostly
alphabetically by surname or business name. To facilitate searching by name
across multiple towns, soundex and wildcard searching, searching by street
address, searching by occupation, and other full-text searches, I have made
the directory searchable at www.kalter.org/search. Instructions for viewing
pages of the directory containing matches to search terms can be found in
the FAQ of the search site (www.kalter.org/searchfaq.html). A town index
can be found on images 39-52.

Please let me know if this has helped you.

Re: Finding a town in Hungary (or anywhere!) #general

phylliskramer1@att.net <phylliskramer1@...>
 

Mark Suss asked about finding his town in Hungary. Let me suggest
that we all keep in mind that wonderful JewishGen resource....
ShtetlSeeker.

The ShtetlSeeker does for towns what the JewishGen Family Finder
(JGFF) does for families....

http://www.jewishgen.org/ShtetlSeeker/

go here, click on search by town name.... key in the name of your town,
click on the country it is in today...for this example... Hungary.
Once you see your town, note the longitude and latitude, click on "M"
and voila... you are connected to a MapQuest map of the area....
a map you can zoom into and out of... a map you can print and download...
what a wonderful resource!!!

Ftdna.com (or Family Tree DNA) has both an internal testing service
and sponsors both www.ysearch.org and www.mitosearch.org to whom you
can and **should** transfer your results for comparison with a large
number of others tested both inside and outside the company.

In addition there are three other DNA internet newsletters of

What does "Not related" mean? #dna

roe kard
 

I am a neophyte who has now read through all the Family Tree DNA
info. They give an example of two people checking to see if they
are related and the test saying that they are not likely to be
related at all. What I seem to understand though is that these tests
are only testing a limited range - father's father's father, etc.
Isn't it really saying "not related through that particular
ancestor?" Couldn't they be related through some other ancestor?

Also, even though JewishGen has an agreement with Family Tree DNA,
when I dig deep into it, I notice that there isn't a Galician
(Austro-Hungarian, as opposed to Spanish) geographic project. Does
this imply that few Galizianers have done this?

Thank you. B'shalom,

Police - Pullitz #austria-czech

Jan O. hellmann <jan@...>
 

I was recently in Prague where I visited the Jewish Museum Archive in order
to see their files on Police >from South Moravia, >from where my Hellmann
family is. First of all I must say that service has been excellent - all
material prepared etc upon arrival. Thanks to the Museum for that.

The basic material they have is following:
1. one sheet of book account >from 1902
2. Contract where the community is buying land >from local farmer Topolek
from 20/5-1852
3. Envelopes in which the community tax has been paid - names are the same
as mentioned those below.
4. Seelengebetstiftungen >from various members of community >from period 1850
to 1902 - names are same as those mentioned below.

Ad 1.
The following names could be gathered:
Josua & Fanny & Rosa SCHLESINGER
Katharina WEISS*
Siegmund WEISS
Bernard & Katharine HELLMANN
Emanuel & Sara GOMPEL
Moses Sprinzl WEISS
Salomon & Resi LANDESMANN
Herman & Eleanora WEISS
Nathan WEISS
Katharina WEISS
Sigmund WEISS
Hermann WEISS
Herman & Mina SCHWARTZBART

Ad item 2
The following names could be gathered:
Kaufmann Bernard HELLMANN
Nathan WEISS
Heinrich GROSSMANN
Emanuel GROSSMANN
Lazar .........(unreadible)
Markus LANDESMANN
Henriette LANDESMANN
Salomon LANDESMANN
KNOEPFELMACCHER.**
*Observe that Weiss should be written with German scharfes s
** observe oe means German o umlaut
Further is to be informed that in 2004 The Jewish Museum in Prague har
issued Judaica Bohemiae XXXIX, where is article concerning The Jewish
population in Moravia in 17th century by Pavel Kocmann. This article gives
Jewish tax listing for 48 towns and villages. I have this book and on
private contact will look up for anybody.
For Police/Pulitz is listing the following Jews in year 1671

Abraham JACOB
Salomon LEVEL

It is my hope that some this information will be
useful for somebody investigating same place.
